Ministry supports PCR test requirement rethink

The environment and tourism ministry has expressed its support towards an appeal by key tourism players for the review of the wording in the current Gazette with regards to the 72-hour ruling on valid PCR tests necessary to enter Namibia.

Tourism players have requested that the public health regulations be amended to the original wording of not older than 72 hours up to the time of first embarkation. They argue this is in line with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) standard wording from “first embarkation”. Furthermore, they are convinced this will make it possible geographically for visitors from high-value source markets across time zones, including Far-East Asia (Hong Kong, Singapore, China) and North America to reach Namibia.
